Format: Audio CD
This was the second album from the doomed (and now defunct) Strangelove. Tragically overlooked and never able to gain the respect of the music press, Strangelove disintegrated after three stunning albums. 'Love and Other Demons' shows them at their musical and lyrical peak.
Album highlights are 'Sway', a lilting ballad on alcohol addiction (no, really!), the monumental 'Sea of Black', and the gorgeous 'She's Everywhere'- not a song about Carol Vorderman, as you might expect, but a poignant account of the breakdown of a relationship. The latter also features vocal contributions from Brett Anderson, who is joined by fellow Suede man Richard Oakes on 'Living with the Human Machines' - but not even this patronage could save Strangelove in the end.
Despite their lack of critical success, their legacy lives on in their influence on other groups. Radiohead once described themselves as a 'post-Strangelove band' - this is pretty apt. Imagine Radiohead with a better-looking lead singer, and you have Strangelove.

When frontman Patrick Duff bellows "This is a message to the skiiiiiies" in the opening track, you know you're in far a dark ride to the edges of glam histrionics. If you're one for subtlety, look elsewhere. Duff brings his frontman's drama right to the edge of ridiculous and pulls it off.

Although the two other albums are strong, this is Strangelove compressed down to their essential elements: intelligent, darkly humorous lyrics (a la Baudelaire), a bravado swagger, and pop hooks that make you want to break out your guitar and take lessons. They don't sound immediately essential or ground-breaking, but once you start playing them, you're likely to start suspecting that they are. Far more successful acts (Muse, Radiohead) gave Strangelove their props. Give it a few listens to see why. Highlights: Casualties, Beautiful Alone, 20th century cold.

One of the best indie bands of the 90's, I had the chance to see live and be blown away. Such a shame they split up after only 3 albums!
Excellent recording, beautifully written and pretty timeless too. Listen to it now, it has not aged a second!
I can only recommend their 3 albums and if you like Suede or old school Radiohead, you'll love Strangelove and wonder why they didn't go as far as their peers, they were very talented!

What makes the sound of Strangelove stand out is the string players-the cello of Audrey Riley especially.Note the name is without the indefinite article or the "s" otherwise as shown on Amazon you get an American group called the Strangeloves
Whatever the band spent 8 weeks on the Top 75 with nothing above the 36 mark and were able to cut around 4 albums for the Liverpool based Food label
In this their penultimate album is a song called Living With The Human Machines which seems to be a plea to Jesus to help the human race who are destroying themselves with technology so its a "message to the sky"
Another way of looking at it is from the viewpoint of an alien who finds himself on a planet populated by what to him are robots
In this doom ridden world is a song called Spiders & Flies.Read between the lines here and it tells you that these bugs are the true inheritors of the Earth and if we destroy it with pollution we eventually find a spiders web above us just waiting till we're left with nothing
